Being Strong

Tucker's new thing is to draw profile's of "scary guys" or "dinosaurs" so he can draw teeth on them or as he saysl- "I draw this one about teeth for him." He is my little artist protege. He loves drawing every morning, noon, and night. It's so great.

He is also really into flexing his muscles right now. Every time we say "healthy and strong" during the prayer he has to unfold his arms and flex for a minute. This is his flex plus straining hard to flex face. Pretty much the best face ever. I dare you not to smile when you look at it. I knew you couldn't.

This next picture is Tucker helping Charlotte flex. "Look, I make her muscles." He is turning into quite the fun big brother. He loves to make her laugh and is always asking if he can. He makes funny faces and noises and indeed she always rewards him with her darling laugh. I think they will be friends after all.
Now it's finaly official. The negotiating is over and Trent has the job at Cardon company. They are even gonna give us a little money for moving expenses. Trent has told them we will shoot to be there by June 12th. Packing has slowly started! Wow this is getting real all of the sudden. I know it is going to be time to go before I am ready. And we are moving just in time to melt upon arrival. So much to do. My life is an adventure and I plan to make the best of each step. I know this move has pros and cons, but there's no turning back now! I will be sad to leave the house we've had both our babies in, our first home that was really OURS. It has been such a great experience to see a house become a home to your family and to hold memories that can never be remade. Trent says he has more friends here than he has in Mesa at this point. It will definitely be a sad goodbye! I am still a bit shocked that we will be gone so soon.

It's not too late. You can stay. I say so.

I am NOT going to cry. Well not today anyway. I was hoping they wouldn't match Trent's last bid so you could stay a little longer... how selfish am I?

We want to have a little birthday bash for the 3 of you birthday people before you leave. I am way excited for you to see what we got you!

hooray for moving boxes! Jake and I moved our couch forward 2 feet and stored an 8-foot wall of moving boxes behind it when we were moving last summer. It made less of a mess. Ah, good times.

How I long for a house. My apartment is a home, but not really.
Tucker's scary guy is great. He really is talented, especially for not even being 3 yet.
